Thai Select seeks to thrill the New York epicure with Thai that's global, fresh and fun. Located in the midtown-west area of Manhattan, Thai Select offers healthy, modern Thai cuisine with worldly flare. Although the signature taste remains authentic Thai in flavor, the presentation might be a bit French in aesthetics, a bit Italian in portion and a bit Japanese in simplicity. With dishes like Kee Mao Fettuccini (made with whole wheat pasta) and Fruit Fried Rice (stir-fried with seasonal fruits), Thai Crabcake (encrusted to perfection) and Coconut Puff Martini (jumbo shrimp hand-battered in coconut strips), the kitchen selects only the very best dishes in Thai cuisine and only the freshest of ingredients picked from the farmer's market for our patrons; hence the name, Thai Select.

Good Thai Meals

Have all the expected Thai foods on the menu and some I haven't tried before. Cool as a after work spot with friends or before a show at Madison Sq. Garden (about 2 blocks away). Had the Green Curry rice and shrimp as entree. The appetizers are small but well priced so order a couple. Good... read more

We enjoyed a very nice Thai dinner at this popular restaurant. We started with the "Tasting Combo", an assorted appetizer that included Curry Puffs, Spring Rolls, Dumplings and Chicken Satay... All were excellent. We also enjoyed the Roti bread with Masaman Curry sauce. For main course we had Shrimp in Ginger Sauce and Chicken in the Lemongrass sauce. We were... More

Ate here this last weekend and chose it because of its proximity to our location, based on the app. The interior was nicely decorated and inviting. Tables even had a generous amount of spacing between each other by New York standards. Our server was friendly and promptly took our drink and meal orders. Both myself and my dining companion ordered... More

We went her for dinner based on other reviews. We were not disappointed. The vegetable dumplings, grilled tofu and bbq pork were all terrific. Very reasonable prices and quick service. Would definitely return!

Now, I'm used to eating spicy but this place seems to but some extra spices into anything. Not that this is a bad thing but you need to know that before :) In any case, the interior is ok, nothing fancy but just about right for this place. I got a cocktail on happy hours, but even though I've asked... More

I love this place! Delicious, fresh, flavorful Thai food, and the bartender was super friendly, efficient and helpful as I selected what to order. (I sat at the bar to eat dinner.) Great prices for the quality of the food. Will be one of my go-to restaurants in NYC now.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
